Check Ville's posting on fedora-packaging on correcting this. And FWIW
I personally think this is the lesser evil. The real "solution" would
be to leave buildroots w/o any mandatory clause.

If a packager isn't able to construct a sane buildroot, then I don't
need to check on the rest of the specfile ...
